The resurgence of M. Night Shyamalan over the last few years has been a blast. Now he's back into his thriller origins, working on a very Hitchcockian premise. Old is a thriller about a family on a tropical holiday who discover that the secluded beach is somehow causing them to age rapidly, reducing their entire lives into a single day.
This sounds like the perfect claustrophobic yet somehow outdoors thriller that takes an incredibly high concept and gives us the tightest and scariest experience imaginable.
Shyamalan tweeted out his new trailer this morning.
While not having concrete details on what happens in the movie, that's a helluva trailer. It's really tense and shows a new kind of horror, one that can occur in an ideal setting during the brightest daylight. Shyamalan has always been good at tapping into the subconscious horror surrounding death, so I think seeing your life play out quickly will scare some people.
